Then, return to the coziness of your Alaska wilderness lodge after a day full of adventure.

You won’t have to travel far from your Alaska wilderness lodge to get a taste of The Great Land. Explore the surrounding land by navigating the Kenai nature trail, a one-mile loop that introduces you to the sights and sounds of Alaska’s playground.


Our Alaska lodges offer excursions that introduce you to life in the Great Land. Hike a path that takes you from the lodge to the Kenai River. Kayak along the lake with loved ones, and fish for salmon. Raft through Class II rapids in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge for an action-packed adventure. Or explore Cooper Landing, meet a local homesteader and see sled dogs in training — all exclusive to our Alaska wilderness lodge.
